I had unprotected sex 11 days ago. I have developed an extremely sore throat 5 days ago. I have no other symptoms. Is this likely to be an early sign of HIV or other Std?

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Just sore throat is not a sign of HIV.

It is likely caused by the cold virus or infection.

Acute HIV causes more symptoms like persistently large neck glands, fever, weight loss usually lasting more than 2 weeks.

Your symptoms should improve in next few days.

Do not worry.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
